Rice and Okra

This is a dish my mom used to make.  I never asked how she made it. I just made my own recipe. Let’s see, she called it rice and okra. OK, I’ll put rice in there, and maybe some Okra. I remember it had a tomato sauce of some sort in it. OK I’ll throw in a few cans of diced tomato. The diced chili tomatoes with green peppers in seem closest to the taste I remember. Here is the recipe:

3 cups rice, Rival cooker, easy

2 15 Oz cans Hunt’s diced tomatoes

2 15 Oz cans Hunt’s chili diced tomatoes

1 16 Oz frozen bag PictSweet cut Okra

Put the tomatoes in a microwave safe container. Cut a bit of the top of the Okra bag, add a little water. Put these in the microwave until the bag starts to steam. Move the rice from the cooker to the container you plan to transport the food in (crock pot, roaster). Drain the okra. Put most of the okra on top of the rice. Cover with tomatoes. Add remaining okra for style.
